movie: lagerfeld confidential

I watched Lagerfeld Confidential over the weekend. Loved it! What a strange, wonderful, creative man Karl is. He likes to be alone and “detests” people who cannot be alone. He is not attached to objects, but has one of the most enormous libraries I’ve ever seen. He has a messy office, but knows where every single thing is. He likes his photos to exhibit a touch of melancholy, and when he couldn’t find someone to shoot the photographs the way he likes, he started shooting them himself. He puts on a show for his business, he says the secret is to work very hard, but not to let people see the work. A lot of people have passion, he says. But the secret to success is passion plus hard work. And, I might add, determination and discipline. I think a lot of “creative types” would identify with Lagerfeld’s philosophy. The film is also a wonderful sneak peek into the world of haute couture. I plan on watching it again (and again).

cozy chic for boys

Shopping for my five-year old can be tough. Seems like most clothes are either super preppy, or covered with cartoon characters. That’s why I’m really loving this cozy collection from Gap. It’s chic and cool … and if I lived somewhere where it got below 60 degrees I’d be all over this collection!

behind the scenes: claire pettibone runway show

photo from Claire Pettibone blog

I had the pleasure of meeting Claire Pettibone last month at the Martha Stewart Weddings 15th Anniversary Party. We chatted a bit about the craziness of putting together a new collection, and the joy of watching a line go “live.” For me, a new collection goes live with little to no fanfare (i.e. our new personal stationery collection went up on our website over the weekend … woot). Part of me wishes for that exciting moment that Claire and her fellow fashion designers get when the first model makes her way down the runway.

You can read more about the behind-the-scenes craziness that is a bridal market week runway show on Claire Pettibone’s blog.

And if you’re a bride in the LA area you are in luck! Claire Pettibone is having a sample sale at their Beverly Hills flagship store:
